Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Thinking about ...

This is a painting that I decided to "blow up" as in, make larger.

Thinking   6 x 8 inches  Oil on Arches Huile Paper

I shot this couple surreptitiously at a Portland hotel restaurant from across the room. I have had the photo for a long time ... finally just decided to paint it.

Titled it thinking, but what do you think they are thinking about?

Next post will be the large size.

Haha - Looks like he's thinking of someone else and looks like she knows it.
Nice one, Teri!!

Could be that. Thank you Chris!

Such a great suggestive painting! I think he is happily thinking of something pleasing and she is rather disinterested.

Thank you Helen! I must say, it does look like he is thinking of something pleasant ... he almost has a smile on his face.
